How was the event received by Fortnite players?
This is how Fortnite players reacted to the Korean band: The event was not only well received by BTS fans. Some of the original Fortnite players, who just wanted to be at the event, were also enthusiastic about the new song or the band itself.
They comment on the premiere under the YouTube video:
– “I don’t like BTS, but I can’t deny that this event was great. Edit: I am now obsessed with BTS.”
– “Looks like K-Pop isn’t so bad after all.”
– “I’m not a fan of K-Pop, but that was kind of cool. The Travis Scott concert was way better, though.”
In general the “concert” seems to have been well received, but the comparison with the Travis Scott concert is often mentioned in the comments. The epic concert brought a huge Travis Scott to the Fortnite world and it was visually one of the coolest events of Fortnite. So in comparison you can see a big difference, even if the BTS event had its charms.
